I think the frustrating thing about CentOS is that when users ask why 
delays are so long, the maintainers say "producing CentOS is't just a 
matter of rebuilding Red Hat sources" and when users ask why there isn't 
a process to contribute the maintainers say "we're just rebuilding Red 
Hat sources, and we don't need help with that."
